Publisher Comments:

Meet Denver, a man raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana in the 1960s; a man who escaped, hopping a train to wander, homeless, for eighteen years on the streets of Dallas, Texas. No longer a slave, Denver's life was still hopeless — until God moved. First came a godly woman who prayed, listened, and obeyed. And then came her husband, Ron, an international arts dealer at home in a world of Armani-suited millionaires. And then they all came together.

But slavery takes many forms. Deborah discovers that she has cancer. In the face of possible death, she charges her husband to rescue Denver. Who will be saved, and who will be lost? What is the future for these unlikely three? What is God doing?

Same Kind of Different As Me is the emotional tale of their story: a telling of pain and laughter, doubt and tears, dug out between the bondages of this earth and the free possibility of heaven. No reader or listener will ever forget it.

Synopsis:

A dangerous, homeless drifter who grew up picking cotton in virtual slavery.An upscale art dealer accustomed to the worldof Armani and Chanel.A gutsy woman with a stubborn dream.A story so incredible no novelist would dare dream it.

It begins outside a burning plantation hut in Louisiana. . . and an East Texas honky-tonk . . .and, without a doubt, in the heart of God. It unfolds in a Hollywood hacienda . . . an upscale New York gallery . . . a downtown dumpster. . . a Texas ranch.

Gritty with pain and betrayal and brutality, it also shines with an unexpected, life-changing love.

This incredible retelling now includes an interview with the authors and a reader's guide that is perfect for individual or group study.

The most inspirational and emotionally gripping story of faith, fortitude, and friendship I have ever read. A powerful example of the healing, restorative power of forgiveness and the transformational, life changing power of unconditional love.-Mark Clayman, Executive Producer forthe Academy Award-nominatedThe Pursuit of Happyness

Denver Moore and Ron Hall's story is one thatmoved me to tears. The friendship that formsbetween these two men at a time when both were ingreat need is an inspiration to all of us to be morecompassionate to everyone we come in contact with. This is truly a wonderful book -Mrs. Barbara Bush

This is a great book. One of human compassion, and of people forgetting the boundaries that often separate us. Heart wrenching and moving, this book truly illustrates how easy it is to put differences aside.

This story of Denver Moore and Ron Hall really touched a chord with me. It was a sad and heart-breaking tear jerker but at the same time so uplifting and inspirational. I have not been so moved by a book in a long time and the story of Denver's homeless plight and subsequent renewal of life, with the help of Ron Hall and his wife Deborah, will have you thinking on this long after you have finished reading it.

I have not read this book yet, but I will say I will be looking forward to getting it and reading it!!! I think it sound like it is not only a true story, but a story that will bring the reader back to "God", and/or the readers spiritual side. I think we all need to be more aware of life and the how we should treasure the things we take for granted! Good reading and I will be purchasing this one soon!
